This city, compared with its condition some years ago, offers a spectacle which can be considered as little lsss than a social miracle. In the crowded capital* of all civilised countries, the vices of gam bling and prostitution have been hitherto regarded, as well by philosophical statesmen as by philanthro pists, inevitable evils, which the civil poweT must either connive at, as is the custom is England, or recognise, circumscribe and restrain within narrow limits, as was the case in France, but of which the repression was asserted to be a social impossibility. Paris and London being the most populous cities, and the resort of the largest number of the idle rich, were pre-eminently the theatres of these vices. In Paris, the State recognised what it could not ex terminate. Public gambling houses and public wo men were not only recognised, but licensed and tax ed. They were moreover placed under the surveil lance of the police, and permitted to follow their re spective callings, but to do so under strict condi tions nnd rules, the observance of which was en forced by penalties, the infliction of which was im mediate and inevitable. A further vent was given to tha gambling spirit by the lotteries, which were conducted, and the profits of which were monopo lised, by the State. In these, people of a 1 classes, down to the lowest in every city, town and village of France, were accustomed to gamble to a fright ful extent, and facilities were otiered for the purpose by ths State, with the most disastrous success. It was. in fact, a large source of revenue. In Paris, ths Palais Royale was the grand temple of these vices. There, in saloons of more than regal splen dor, legalised crime reigned supreme. There were repeated nightly the loud orgies of the gamester and ths courtesan, and scenes were enacted, the details ol which, were it possible to state them consistently with the decencies of the press, would be pronounced incredible. Besides the profit to the treasury of the State, a large revenue was derived from this by the proprietor of that itn mensv baxaar. That proprietor was his majesty Lou is Phillipe. The Palais Royale formed an item in the inventory ol his vast wealth. After a certain hour of thw evening, respectable females could not ap|>ear on foot in the streets or public walks, which then swarmed with the votaries of pleasure, apparelled with shameless audacity in the meretricious trap pings of their avocation, and openly urging their im pure solicitations on the casual passenger. The win dows of splendid saloons on the Boulevards, and the most frequented streets,glittered with brilliant lights, indicating to the unwary, the haunts of unhallowed rites. Well then, this is ?H changed. The wand of a beneficent enchanter has waved over it and ihe im pure crowd h it vanished. The i^'lcl"' ? Z gamester have been consigned to thetiames.andthere is not a hazard table in Paris ! The Palais Royule jB as pure as the Royal residence ttseif. Within ?" precincts prostitution dares not raise its head You may walk the Parisian thoroughfares day and night without encountering aught which, in any externa' appearance, could offend themost delicately,nodesf evtrv r " i-a 1 htr ?aliln*' The lotteries of vepr form and kind throughout the country are < T wherever a private gambling table can be found, it is relentlessly broken up, and its vo taries dispersed by the police. That vice does not exist I cannot aver ; but, if it does, it must be sought for; it is not, as formerly, obtruded on the public om ll f" .UrementiS "re not ostentatiously spread out before the young and the unwary. To whom honor is due let it be paid. This vast public benefit, this extermination of gaming, and re presston of those immodesties which closed the walks of the city against decent females, is the work UuisPhil^nl^h Barhr-cades- By dm firmness Of ixiuis i nillmpe, ihis change, amounting to little les* than a social miracle, has been wrought and m him the world i? indebted for ihe lirac.ma?demOQatraUo^ that the advocates of public order and decencv can accomplish this; and need neither to wink at the practice of vice, as 111 England, nor compound whh a by laving a under contribution and ruEs as was formerly ,he custom in France.

As this subject is one which must present features of profound interest to every well informed American, I shall offer no apology for entering somewhat fully upon it here and enabling you to lay before your readers some* i ? l J"08' imP?rtant practical conclusions to which these extensive enquiries have led ? ,(>u':8tion w*Je'her * great maritime power ought to be provided with a steam squadron has ceased to be debated. It is universally conceded ? The first point alter this to be settled is the nrooor dmdedWhHh ,llC ,0lCC ?fua national navy shouldtie divided. How much ought to consist of sailing ves sels, and how much of steamers? and above all to determine the means whereby the pecubar powers of each of these clusses may be most fullv developed without impairing those of the other. It is aisiTto I be determined how the steam marine may be best rnaniged so as to render it available on the one St ? other, to J adapt it for the rapid transmiss on of troop""^^ munitions in a war of invasion. A commisTon of -?v ,v- ,, a commission, of which the 1 nnce de Joinville was president, after ail elaborute investigation laid down the following EXSW ThafiWiintained m'ght be assumed as aata. 1st. That 111 ihe tactics of a steam marine the general object being to fight (en pointe) from' stem and stern, it is necessary to concentrate at defence ""^nd6 me?nH ot "?ack and defence. 2nd. That the limited space at these points compared with that afforded by the sides of artillerv*^ Is??. war'n.ot l^rmitting a numerous artillery, it is necessary, (whatever otherwise be the arm employed,) to compensate by magnitude of calibre for deficiency of number. It was, therefore recommended in steamers of two hundred and' *'e.n'y ,h.or9e Power to use two howitzers of eight inch calibre, and two long guns of twelve inch call bow h wel"8 P aCed a- 8Uirn and two at the bow. It was further maintained, that as one of the most important uses of a steamed in marifime war would be to facilitate and expedite the disembark ment of troops in the case of invasion, it was indis pensable to provide in such vessels as large a space as possible for the accommodation of troops. It was recommended to modify the rigging by the suppres sion of the mizen mast, by diminishing to the extent of above two and a half fe?l the bowsprit, pmtfng back the fore-mast, by eight feet and the main-mast ind'a half fee?UUfimentine the ,a"er by three In considering the best method of arming steam S^?f?:TelBWere reduJced t0 different classes, according to their power and tonnage.

I notice this conclusion, which I consider to be a principle of the very highest ini|>ortance, and h^nVr i'88 a?a,Vnd ttKain been pressed 011 the pubhc in America by Dr. Gardner, both in his published writings and in his oral discourses. It is also to this problem that Cant.; Ericsson has for so many years consecrated his labors. Various contri h(aVe,?" reBOrted t0 both sides of the In tVnn/..'? lM'a?"nent of this important object, la I ranee the principle of the screw is considered as that which has most nearly approached to its prac tical solution. "The trial of the screw/' saV the report of the f-rench Commissioners, "on hoard the Napoleon, has established its practical efficiency as .1 submerged propeller, and its superiority over the common paddle wheels. The advantages of the submerged propeller are more especially evident in u-ansatlsnt'c steam navigation, ifts navigatmn JaS be permanently established only on the condition that means can be devised to employ alternately the sills and the steam power, by which a saving of 75 per cent of fuel can be effected. Not only is suba queous propulsion economical, as respects fuel, but it will give to the transatlantic voyages extraordi nary rapidity. As a practical example of this t may be mentioned that the English frigate Vernon in the service of the East India Company, sup? ed with an auxiliary engine of thirty horse power, act ing on light wheels easily unshipped, performed the voyage from Calcutta to London, by the Caiie in f days, making the passage from the Cape in 48 S ftf"d consequently in 15 days less than the time treHV, ni ?am?

Itap piars tl kt he and his wife had lor some time lived unhap pily, in consequence of mutual jealousies. On Monday uight they had been quarrelling, and just before the In tul occurrence he committed a most unnatural and mur derous outrage upon her, stabbing her in the lace, side and alKlomen in about twenty places, with a sharp point ed inatiument resembling a shoemakers punch. Iter cries of murder alarming the neighbors and the watch, he ran desperately to the top of the house, which wns a tlat roof, and pitcned himself over the railing, exclaim ing to the persons below to look out, that he was co ining. Striking the edge of the roof on the outside of the railing, ho was precipitated in the fall beyond the foot pavem. nt, and Ins head coming in contact with the curb stone liia brains were knocked out, his nock broken, and nearly every bone in his body fractured.

AH in a Nutshell. Business good?the calamity by fire forgotten? the city greatly improved in the rebuilding. Many of the improvements are, iri vlevf of a rapid in crease of population, and, of course, business. The terminus of the Baltimore and Ohio Railway, we 1 think must, and will be at this place. I would in ; form, you that the agitators and fanatics that every 1 where ot late infest our country, aa in the case ot our late " cotton factory strike," I am happy to sa^ have been put down lor the time being through conclusive argument, that we cannot commence tne ten hour system, only through a general adoption in the large cotton lactory regions, which would be adopted in this place without opposition, when in general it cau be uniform. I only have to say, that the most prudent and better portion of the opera tives have turned in to work, and our mills are all in o|>eration. Peace and quiet is now the order of the day. Alore of the Boston AInrtler. [From Boston Times, Oct. 30 J Tiie inspected murderer in this case, Tirrell, has not yet been arrested. It has been ascertained that he was at Weymouth, at the house of his father-in-law, after the officers were there on Monday, that he disclesed to his wife and relatious the fuct of the murder, and after a while obtained a sum of money from them to escape with. It has been re|>ortod to the authorities of this county, that his friends were able to got $500 for him out of the Weymouth Bank that day. A person then carried him in a carriage to Pembroke, some twenty miles, where he left him. The affair has come to the Board of Alder men, and they have taken some action in the matter of offering a reward, and in the arrest of the individual.? The people expect the Common Council to take some measure in rotation to this great nublic wrong this even ing, and we trust they will not be wanting in a sense of what is their imperative duty. We learn that the track ol Tiriellis clo.ely followed by energetic and skilful officers. [From Boston Mall, Oct. 30 ) The apathy manifested hy the city government, on the occasion of the late horrible tragedy in this city, cannot be too strongly reprehended. If there lie any head or tail to the present body of .Municipal officers, why do they not offer a reward of $1000 or $3000 for the appre hension of Tirrell 7 The police officers cannot be ex pected to scour the country at their own expense, with no hope of remuneration, while they may be earning the means of living by staying at home. This is a fatal weakness in the police system. If Tirrell escapes, the fault must be laid at the door of the city government. A liberal reward, on such occasions as the present, would strike more terror in the hearts of evil doers than all the prisons in the world. We ask again, why is not a re ward offered ! If the government is afraid of increasing taxes by such means, let us give the rewards, and save the amount on public dinners ard Are woiks. It is currently reported that a woman died mysteriously at New Bedford, last summer, in a house of ill-fame, where the unfortunate female lately murdered resided a; the time?and that Tirrel was there about the period of the transaction. It is supposed that the unfortunate Mrs. Bicklord was in possussion of some information, a disclosure of which might have criminated him, and

which led to her murder. We give this at a mere ru mor. Great Mineral Discoveries in Northern W iscoNsiN ?It may not be known to many ot our readers that during the month of August last, an expe dition was fitted out at Green Bay, to explore the coun try north of this point, in search of minerals. A party of five or six of our citi/.ens proceeded to the Menomo nie river, ascended it for many miles, and returned in a short time highly elated with the diicoveries they had made, in due time, a second expedition was made, and the Menomonie was ascended a still greater distance. The party returned again to the Bay, having made their fortunes, to use a common phrase. They brought spe cimens of copper and silver which astonished the most sanguine, and their description of the country and its mineral prospects were such as to set at rest the doubts of the most incredulous. During the past month a suffi cient examination of the country north and north west ofiis has been bad,to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that it ubounds with copper uud silver mines full as va luable as the richest of the lake Superior discoveries. Mr. Cushman, an experienced miner, and one who has dealt much in the Lake Superior mining, declares that the country of which we speak is richer in minerals than the boasted Lake Superior mines, and that the ore can be obtained at a less expense. We have seoti some of the specimens of silver and copper, and have listened with pleasure to the high wrought descriptions of the hidden treasures of the earth. We learn tiiat a Govern ment Mineral agency will be opened at this placothe ensuing Spring, and that Major J. B. Campbell has been, oris to be, appointed agent to grant permits. Already some speculation has resulted in oonsequence of the discoveries which have been made on the Menomonie. Gentlemen acquainted with the country near the Wolf and Baraboo Rivers, inform us thatfan abundance of cop per, silver aud iron ore is to be found on these streams What effect the discovery of mineral in our immediate vicinity will have upon the business of Green Bay, we leave to every reader to decide for himself. We believe that a new era is about to dawn upon us?that the sun beams of prosperity will shortly smile upon us, and that our streets will soon teem with a population of many thousands of enterprising citizen I.?Green Buy Revub. Steam Revenue Gutters.?We have been favor ed by the Treasury Department with a report, made under the auspices of the revenue-cutter officer*, of the several steamer* which have been constructed under different plans fer the application of steam power. The subject is not only important to the revenue sorviae, but to the commercial marine of the United States. The question is, which of these various mode* is the best ! We understand that eight steamers are in commission, or in oourse of construction, for the revenue marine. The "Spencer,1' built at 1'ittsburg, was originally upon Lieut. Hunter's plan, but the propelling power has been changed to Lopor's. The "Legare," at New York, was, and now is, upon the plan of Capt. Kricason. The "Bibb," upon Lieut. Hunter's plan, built at Pitts burg, is unfinished Tne Jcflerson," built at Oswego, was upon Capt. Uric sou's plan, but has qeen changed to Loper's. The "Dallas," building at Buffalo, was intended for Lieutenant Hunter's plan, but is now having side wheels applied. The "McLane," building at Boston, was intended for Lieutenant Hunter's plan, but is likewise changed to side wheels. The "Polk" at Richmond, and "Walker," at Pittsburg, are under construction with side wheels. The contracts for building were made for all during the administration of Mr. Tyler. Glad to Get Back.?The Cincinnati Inquirer tells the following story:?A Southern gentleman who, within tne past two years, married one of our pret tiest g'rls acd took her to Louisiana, came up in the early part of last summer with his wife to spend several months in the city, bringing with him a favorite black girl. The girl told him be lore she left home that if he took her with him, she would leave him when they arrived heie, but ho knew that she had always been a faithful servant, to whom he had always been kind, and he doubted her threats. Mr. B., the Southerner, had not been in the city trot a few days before the girl made good her words. She left him and he took no pains to win her back. A place was procured lor her by one of the good uatured persons whose province it is to attend to such things, where she remained,three or lour weeks, and then leit on account of the bud treatment received She subsequently did a little washing here, and some house woik there, until at length, after a good many re buffs, she was engaged as a nurse by a lady stopping at the Broadway Hotel, with whom she stayed about three months. She began to see that the lile of freedom she expected to lead, was not what she had anticipated. Hhe sighed for her old home in Louisiana. Oil Thursday last she told her mistress she had determined to go back to her old master, and sure enough she packed up her things, took passage on the Majestic lor New Orleans, and left on the following day, satisfied with what the abolitionists call liberty lor the poor slave. Discovery of Murderers.?Since our lust issue, the murderers of Jacob Phillips have been discover ed, and are now in jail in this place. They are three negroes?a woman and two men, or rather oue man and a boy, sons ol the woman. The secret of their murder was louud by one of the fellows attempting to pass oil' a ten dollar hill, part ot the money taken Irom Phillip*. They all make a con essiou of being concerned in the murder, to this effect :-On the rug lit that the act was committed, the bay stopped from the woods where the three were secreted, and took bold of the reins of the bridlo, and at the same time the negro inau, with a club, lolled the deceased to the ground at two blows: the wo man, with a club, repeated the blows, aDd lastly the boy. '1 he statement that Phillips was shot, appears to have been a mistake-he was beaten to death with clulis. Ail three ot the negroes belonged to Phillips,and the reason that they all give for this diabolical deed, is that ho restrained them Irom running about the settle ment. Phillips, we learn, bad been quite indulgent to wards his servants, and allowed them many puvileges, until the neighborhood was a good deal annoyed by stealing, fee. when he thought proper to check them.? Huthetjord Ilrpuhticun. Double Accident.?The Boston mail steamer did not arrive Wednesday morning until 10 o'clock, in consequence of two accident* on the Providence and Stonington Railroad.

The Earthquake was more ssvere on Sunday in Connecticut than inNewYoik. At Huntington, a cler gyman was leading at the deak, when his hooka were thrown off the table. At Greenfield Hill, milk pans were thrown down, and couiidermble' consternation waa produced among the people On Thursday evening the springs and wells in that neighborhood, were ail dry lor more than an hour and a half?the water having appa rently receded from them inte the earth. The Pennarolu Gazette, notices the arrival at that place on Wednasday last of a steamboat, the Lama, from Geneva, in Alabama. Geneva is a small village at tbe junction of the Chocktahatchie and Tea rivers. This is the first attempt that has been made to navigate the former river by steam. The pilot of the Lama declares that it is much easier to navigate than the Chatahoochie. Tbe Gazette anticipates that the navigation of this chan nel will cause an accession of 10,000 bales of cotton a year to the trade of Penracola. The labor of taking the census of Boston under the direction of Mr Shattuck by order of the City Coun cil is nearly completed.

The Arkan sas, a large stream usually, wan completely dried up,for id a ] twonty miles or more, and a person could walk over it | any place. Much anxiety was felt lor the last comp8 i nies of the traders of Santa Ke, lest such a deprivation of water,at such a time, should lead to loss of life among the animals, if not the men themselves. A new invention has just appeared in England, callvd the "Satellite," or "Iron-Slave," which it is said wLl change the system of agricultural labor, especially in warm climates, and substitute iron slaves for buman slaves. The machine is intended for agricultural pur poses, such as ploughing, sowing, reaping, also for ma king canals, roads and tunnels. It is a trame of iron, ol' 4 feet wide, and 20 teet long, with a shaft of 7 i'eet long iu front and a shaft of 0 feet 6 it clies long behind, with in o broad wheels, and a steering wheal on the extreme end. The Augusta Age has the gratilying announce ment that the removal of obstructions in the channel ol the Kennebec has been entirely successful, as far as the work has gone. The gravel bed at Gage's Brook, just below the wharves at Augusta, has been removed, or will be, at the close of the season, so as to make an am ple channel, sufficient for the largest class ef steamboats that ply on the river. Several thousand tons of gravel have been removed. The work will be carried toward next season upon the shoals lower down, until a commu nication is opened to the channel below Halloweli. This is an improvement of much public interest, and es pecially important to Augusta. This year has proved far more sickly than the last. We have not heard of a single neighborhood in the whole country that has escaped the visitations of fe n rs, and lever and ague.

It is said that several years ago, shortly after a ieguiar judiciary system was first established by the eastern Cnerukees,a trial for murder was among the first cases brought before one of the Circuit Judges. A jury was sworn, and the prisoner, a Creek Indian, arraigned at the bar, who, in reply to the usual interrogatory, "Guilty, or not guilty," pleaded guilty.
